The Carolinas Museum of Aviation is set to be renamed in honor of Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, the hero pilot behind the 2009 “Miracle on the Hudson.” US Airways Flight 1549 was headed to Charlotte, N.C., and that’s where you can find the plane today. The Sullenberger Aviation Museum will reopen in September under its new name, with additional exhibitions on advances in aviation history and STEM programs for young visitors.

The Temporary Stay visa can be extended four times, for up to five years.

The world of aviation is flying toward a greener future. ZeroAvia, an aviation company that specializes in hydrogen-electric engines, successfully completed a test flight of the world’s biggest airplane powered by hydrogen in January. The 19-seat jet marks a huge leap forward in sustainable aviation. Virgin Atlantic is also breaking sustainability barriers. This year, it’s scheduled to fly a Boeing 787 from London to New York using only sustainable aviation fuel. The fuel is made partly of waste oils, like used cooking oil and agricultural byproducts.
